Abia Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, on Wednesday called on Nigerian People to always contribute to the development of the nation and the world by working for the peace and mutual coexistence of peoples through swift and non-violent means of conflict resolution.

The Governor stated this during the ceremony marking the 2020 Armed Forces Remembrance Day which held in Umuahia the Abia State capital on Wednesday.

The governor said swift and non-violent conflict resolution mechanism will help in no small way to reduce to the barest minimum wars, insurgencies, armed banditry and other conflicts that have endangered peaceful coexistence both in Nigeria and the world.

Ikpeazu who was joined by other prominent personalities to lay a wreath at the feet of the Unknown Soldiers at the Aguiyi Ironsi Cenotaph, Ogurube Layout, Umuahia, stressed that his administration will not relent in continually appreciating the commendable efforts of members of the Nigerian Legion, the Armed Forces and other security agencies in ensuring that Abia, Nigeria and the world at large remain peaceful, secure and united.
